Doc And Mike Blakely  

Combines humor, music and message

James "Doc" Blakely is a funny, entertaining speaker and recipient of the Cavett Award, NSA's top award. A musician, author of seven books, and regular weekly columnist of the syndicated humor column "Pokin' Fun," Doc Blakely has been wowing audiences for over 20 years. All done with good, clean humor! But don't let his humor-filled style fool you. Doc is a Ph.D. who packs his fun presentations with great skills that help audiences open up, take a look at themselves, and learn new ideas that foster communication, success, and a positive outlook on life.

Doc is often joined by his son, Mike, a musician and writer who has authored ten western novels. The musical comedy, theater-type show they present provides several choices for the meeting planner: a solo humorist or a duo featuring cowboy ballads, old trail drive songs, fiddle tunes, and loads of humor. Blending tall tales and "hot licks" music, Doc and Mike take you on a figurative journey up the old Chisholm Trail (or they can tailor it to a local historical area). They have performed from Austin to Boston, from Daytona Beach to Eugene. They have been called everything from "motivational musicians" to "corporate cowboys."


Accent on Laughter

Doc finds a uniquely positive and humorous way to look at the many nationalities - and their ACCENTS - that make up this country. The talk hits home when Doc puts the "accent" on sales, customer service, safety, excellence or whatever the organizations' needs are.

To Soar With Eagles

Inspired by Doc's personal experiences in learning to fly, Doc shows us that by using the principles of faith, service, wisdom, action, artistry and security we can rise above life's challenges - and maybe even learn to fly. The program is filled with hilarious stories that drive home a very important message.

Success Comes in Cans

This talk is inspired by the cattlemen who gathered at the local honky tonk in South Texas and drank out of tin cans. The longer they drank, the more successful they seemed to be. The myth, of course, explodes when daylight and sobriety prevail.

Livin' on Love and Laughter

You may or may not be surprised that the secret to life is revealed in a country western song, but according to Doc they are! This two-part talk takes us through a philosophy filled with fun that allows us to spend more time grazin' on greener pastures, livin' on love and laughter.

The Gift of Laughter

The gift of laughter is a free bonus to all that come along for the ride. With this talk, Doc leaves little doubt that your attitude reflects your latitude! Doc gives us a way to get serious about success, to succeed where others fail and most importantly to leave 'em laughing.
